Central Oneida County Volunteer Ambulance Corp will put a substation in Oriskany Falls as early as next month.
While COCVAC has been using the Oriskany Falls firehouse as a base for calls in southern Oneida County and North Brookfield, that spot was temporary. Until the permanent home is set up, they will remain at the firehouse.
The Oriskany Falls Village Board approved the plan at their meeting last week. COCVAC will rent a village-owned building behind the Village Hall.
That space contains a garage for the ambulance and living quarters. The station will be staffed 24 hours a day by two crews working 12-hour shifts.
In news from the board’s February meeting, Matt Bowie brought the Oneida County State of New York Second Amendment Sanctuary Ordinance to the Board. The Board asked Attorney William Getman to review.
Mayor Steve Jeffers said Village residents from South Main Street have called to say thank you for the snow removal on their street. The banks were getting too high and they couldn’t see getting out of their driveway.
Trustee Brian Bell said good job to the DPW for snow removal over the weekend storm, adding it was a great use of their time.
The property at 105 Maple Ave. has officially been condemned. Occupants along with the dogs have been evicted.
Board members approved Request for Proposals from Seymour Excavation for Septic Pumping, Gates Cole/NYMIR for Insurance and Fitzgerald, DePietro & Wojnas CPAs for accounting service through May 31 for $4,500.
After the one-hour public session, the board met in executive session for an hour to discuss personnel.
